Small businesses have tight budgets and getting native apps developed for both Android and iOS is expensive. But Magento store owners can save money by investing in an app builder. Magento app builder is a tool that allows you to build a native app for both Android and iOS. This nullifies the need of developing the apps individually. The app builder offers everything that an app must have and is fully customizable. Store owners can also handle multiple stores via app builder and also link them. This app builder is the reason Magento store owners should not restrict themselves to web stores only. Let us see more on how app builders can help you build Magento 2 mobile apps.

Customizable Layouts

With the app builder, you have full control over choosing what goes on the home screen. You can add widgets and templates of your choice. It gives full flexibility to manage the app layout, from the content to design. You can change banners, headers, style, categories, and other features with a simple drag and drop facility. Thus, this app builder will give you full freedom on what you want in your app and how you want it. The whole process is hassle free and you can simply select what goes with your business theme.

Single Page Checkout

No business likes losing customers at the checkout, because your checkout page is too complex for them. You can simply have one page checkout process, without redirecting your customers to a new page or having multiple pages for them to fill. You will have users that do not want to sign up. Offer them guest check out facilities to make the purchase. App builder offers a single page checkout in which users can add or remove products, change the quantity of the product, make online payments, etc. to guest users as well.

Manage Products

You will be managing a lot of products that you sell via your app. But not every product has the same price or category. What if you want to offer a discount on some product or a particular category. For that app builder has this customization feature. You can change the price, image, date and time, description, etc. of the products individually and in bulk. The app builder will offer multiple customization options to fulfill your customer segments.

Payment Gateway

The app builder has an online payment gateway where you can offer multiple payment options to your customers. To have multiple payment options, it will give your customers the convenience to choose. There are chances that customers might not make payment if you do not have enough payment options. So, try offering multiple payment options. This will help you in creating a better checkout experience for your users. The conversion rate will also increase, thus increasing sales.

Multiple Languages

The app builder offers support to multiple languages including right to left support so that Arabic, Persian, Urdu, Hebrew, etc. language readers can read easily. Having a multiple language option will give your business scope to expand.


The app builder also helps in marketing your new launch or staying in touch with your customers. The app builder allows you to send notifications. There are multiple ways to use notifications. For instance, the notifications can be useful in sending information about the new product launch, upcoming and ongoing sales and discounts, reminding users to look at the special recommendations from you, etc. This is a simple way of reminding your users that they have your app on their phones and there is something interesting going on. Thus notification on the app builders can help you in forming loyal customers.
